Dunkin’ Donuts to open this year

DOWNEY – Dunkin’ Donuts confirmed Tuesday what already had been widely reported: it will open a restaurant at 9070 Firestone Blvd., formerly an Arby’s. The restaurant is expected to open before the end of the year and will be one of nearly 1,000 Dunkin’ Donuts planned in California.

“We are pleased with the solid start to our California development plans, and today’s announcement of the locations of our first new traditional Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants represents development that is ahead of schedule due to the strong interest of prospective franchisees and consumers across the state,” said Paul Twohig, president of Dunkin’ Donuts U.S. and Canada, and Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Europe and Latin America. “We are especially happy to be partnering with such experienced and passionate franchise groups as we begin opening traditional Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in California. We look forward to keeping Californians running on our brand’s high-quality coffee, sandwiches and baked goods.”

The Downey location will be operated by franchisees Danny and Coby Sonenshine, founders of Prell Restaurant Group. They also will operate a Dunkin’ Donuts in Whittier.
